Ja'Mal Gilmore started cutting hair in Brooklyn, NY at the age of 15. Since moving to Boulder, he has cut hair at various barbershops and salons, including Paul Morrison Colours, Floyd's Barbershop, and Urban Pearl Salon. Many of Ja'Mal's customers have followed him around town over the years—and ultimately to Brooklyn Barber Academy.
Ja'Mal cuts, styles, and colors all types of hair for men, women, and children. He continues to deepen his knowledge and practice through regular trainings and workshops.
When not behind the chair, you'll find Ja'Mal at the Valmont Bike Park—with his six-year-old son—riding and jumping their BMX bikes.
